Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
“The Relationship Repair Guy is what I'm known as. One of my biggest goals with every client is to work myself out of a job with them. ”
My ideal client is one that wants to improve their relationship and is willing to take personal responsibility for their part in making it happen, even if they don't know exactly what that looks like. They don't come in looking for me to 'fix' their spouse, but come in seeking help from a wise partner to help improve themselves and their relationship. The ideal client has a moral base through faith in a personal relationship with God to draw on when facing difficult times.
I have served in combat as a military chaplain and understand the cost of war. Although it is usually a misspelling, many couples have come to believe that marital and martial are the same thing. But it's not supposed to be that way. Couples aren't supposed to be enemies in war. I bring my training and experience to bear to help couples win in marriage.
I understand the struggles of relationships, especially marriage. We are supposed to learn how to be married well by watching Dad and Mom demonstrate it to us as we grow up. If they didn't do a good job, where would you learn how to have a great marriage? That's where I come in. I help give tools & hope to help couples build incredible relationships.
